About the project
The main objective of the exchange programmed is to create and reinforce synergies between applied investigation fields of engineering and medicine in order to develop new solutions for the healthcare sector.
The project will help in creating a high level expertise and understanding on Design, Prototyping and Manufacture for Medical Devices using computing tools, biomaterials and other biocompatible engineering materials.
Traditionally, engineers and technologists often work separated from medical doctors and surgeons and vice versa.
If the interchange (transfer) of knowledge between both professions is created, in forms of seminars, workshops, informative days, colloquiums, symposiums, etc. a flux of new ideas can come out in such a way that the engineers could develop solutions for the use of medical doctors and surgeons according to their needs.
